-The complexity ​of the problems related to the localregional ​and global environmentsresource use and sustainability may challenge the future ​development of human societiesOur generation ​and future oneshoweverhave to address these issues using all available approaches as well as to develop innovative approaches to create a comprehensiveintegrated understandingthat can deliver reliable information for adaptation ​and mitigation policy. The demand for timely assessment ​of vulnerabilities ​in the climate system ​and in global ecosystem services, in support to policy will continue to grow, and the research community ​will face the challenge ​and commensurate opportunity to respond to such needs in a timely ​and effective manner.+The importance ​of anthropogenic climate change and the environmentboth regionally ​and globallyis a challenge ​for the scientific community to further understand the complex interactions within the Earth system and its future ​evolutionThe challenge is both to advance knowledge of the emerging mechanisms that control climate, ​and help define climate policytaking into account co-benefits and trade-offs between biomass productioncontrol of greenhouse gas emissions and management of water resources.

 +The common scientific activities ​of the SOFIE research group between Peking University ​in China and the Laboratory of Sciences of Climate ​and EnvironmentJoint Research Unit of the CEA and UVSQ in France brings together more than 70 researchers ​and students focus on quantifying and understanding ​the interactions between biogeochemical cycles, the physics of the climate system and human-induced changes.  
 + 
 +The primary objective of SOFIE in its first phase of development ​will be the study of feedbacks between the carbon cycle, atmospheric composition ​and climate, regional and global scales. The methods used are based on numerical and empirical models as well as the analysis of different Earth observation datasets. More than 80 rank A publications have been published jointly since 2009, including 10 in the prestigious journals: ​ Nature, Science ​and PNAS.
  
-The foundation of a virtual research institute between Beijing University in China and the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'​Environnement,​ a joint research laboratory of CEA, CNRS and UVSQ in France will address the challenge of quantifying and understanding the key interactions in the Earth System between biogeochemical cycles, the physical climate system and human induced changes. The prime focus of the virtual institute in its early development phase will be the study of regional and global feedback loops between the terrestrial carbon cycle, atmospheric composition changes and climate variability and trends. The approach will rely on process based numerical models, empirical models and analysis of past and present Earth Observations.
